Valentine Brown - Valentine Brown, a doctor who, through poor investments, loses the Throssel sisters’ small fortune for them. He disappoints Phoebe Throssel when he goes off to the Napoleonic Wars without proposing marriage. Following his military service, during which he becomes a captain, he returns, minus his left hand. He is amazed by the alteration in Phoebe’s appearance after ten years. To Phoebe’s discomfiture, he does not conceal his surprise. He learns, however, to appreciate Phoebe and marries her.

Phoebe Throssel - Phoebe Throssel, who is in love with Valentine. When he shows dismay that ten years of schoolteaching have made a drab, mousy woman of her, she dresses as if she were twenty again. Her appearance deceives Captain Brown, and she maintains a disguise as her own fictitious niece Livvy. Her activities and popularity while in disguise convince Captain Brown that he prefers the more mature, modest, and quiet Phoebe.

Susan Throssel - Susan Throssel, Phoebe’s sister. She is retiring and shy, like Phoebe. Both sisters find teaching school difficult, for they detest teaching some subjects, such as Latin and mathematics. They also fear the older boys and dare not punish them

Miss Willoughby - one of the old maids of Quality Street. A stern gossip.

Patty - an affectionate servant of the Throssels who knows how to run the house to her own liking contrary to the Throssels wishes.

Charlotte - young lady of quality street, former pupil and friend of the Throssels, looking to win Ensign Blade.

Harriet - former pupil and friend of the Throssels, eager for a night of dancing
